Metrics that boggle the mind

Northern Kentucky is once again preparing for the white fluffy deathness that is Snowmaggedon.  It is apparently de rigeur to reassure the populace that the state has everything under control.  Thus, we see statements like this:
In Northern Kentucky, there are 19,000 tons of salt and 123 trucks available to treat state highways and interstates.
There are 24,000 tons of salt at the salt pile in Camp Washington. 
43,000 tons of salt.  86,000,000 pounds.

That would make a lot of ice cream.
